Smita Ray Choudhury [3]


Abstract: In the present scenario, due to the mass shift in food habits from natural and home-made fresh food to processed, canned and junk food ? keeping a check on food derivative neurotoxin exposure especially among children and teenagers has become a huge challenge. This challenge gets amplified because people are mostly not aware of such danger that junk and processed food poses. Processed and junk foods contain various neurotoxins like Aspartame, Sucralose, Diacetyl, Monosodium Glutamate, Acrylamide, Aluminum etc. Consuming food loaded with such high content of neurotoxins leads to various mental problems like depression and even neural/ brain impairment. This article is an effort to collectively identify and understand the various food derived neurotoxins and their harmful effects on human body. This study has referred to multiple researches and finding in the area of various neurotoxins studies, medical reports and research findings on effects of food derived neurotoxins on human nervous system, brain cells and even DNA.
